Birth: 1600, England
Death: 1670
Fairfield County
Connecticut, USA

Jehu Burr (who was born by about 1606 and died at Fairfield by 1654, a& perhaps earlier) married by 1631 _____ _____. "_____ Bur the wife of Jehu Bur" admitted to Roxbury church as member #26, probably at or not long after the organization of the church in 1632. They lived first in Roxbury MA, then Springfield MA in 1636, then Fairfield CT in 1641.
They had five children: Jehu, John, Nathaniel, Elizabeth Olmstead Gilbert Seeley, & Daniel.
Jacobus, in preparing his study of Fairfield families, noted the following: "He may have married more than once. The mother of Jehu, Jr., was quite likely sister of JOHN CABLE {1630, Roxbury}, Sr. There was probably some relationship between the Burrs and the family of Nathaniel Perry."
On 10 April 1645 Connecticut General Court ordered that "Jehue Burr the elder and Tho: Barlowe are to be warned to the next Particular Court." Although a son need not be twenty-one before his father is referred to as "the elder," he would probably be more than fourteen, so it may be that Jehu was born as early as the mid-1620s, although this would seem to make him several years older than any other child. This would in turn imply that the elder Jehu Burr's marriage had taken place some years before 1631 (or perhaps there was another, earlier wife).
